Mmmmm...on the weekends, I love baked French Toast for breakfast with a smear of butter and a drizzle of maple syrup. One CafeMom has an easy recipe that she shared recently in Recipe Swap! You put it together the night before and bake it in the oven in the morning...
Overnight French Toast (from The Garden of Vegan)
2 large apples - peeled, cored and sliced
3 Tbsp butter or margarine
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup dry sweetener of your choice
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 cup apple juice
1/2 cup plant or animal milk (I use vanilla soy)
1/2 cup yogurt (I use vanilla)
1 tsp vanilla extract
4-6 thick slices of day old bread
In a saucepan, cook the apples in the butter/margarine until they start to soften. Add the cinnamon, dry sweetener, syrup and cook until the apples are nice and soft. Pour into the bottom of an 8x8 baking pan. In a large bowl, mix remaining ingredients except bread. Dip the bread into the milk/yogurt mix and layer on top of the apple mix. Pour the remaining milk mixture over the top. Cover and refrigerate.
In the morning, preheat the oven to 350. Uncover the baking dish and bake for 35-40 minutes.
What's your favorite breakfast on the weekends?
